Palatka Construction began today on a Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) project to repair and replace portions of the fender systems beneath three bridges in Putnam County. A fender system helps guide boats through the channel beneath a bridge and helps protect the bridge from impacts. Work is scheduled to begin first on the Memorial Bridge on U.S. 17 in Palatka and the Dunns Creek Bridge on U.S. 17 in San Mateo. Construction activities will then move to the Ocklawaha Bridge on State Road 19 south of Palatka. While some lane closures or lane shifts may be necessary for equipment near the edge of the road, the majority of the work will be done from barges located in and near the channel beneath the bridges. Boaters should use caution while traveling through the area. The contractor currently plans to work during the daytime Monday through Friday. During construction, the fender system at the channel beneath each bridge will be repaired or replaced, new piles will be installed and electrical work for navigational lights will take place. Hal Jones Contractor, Inc. of Jacksonville, Florida has been hired by FDOT to complete this $2.5 million project by spring 2014.

Sergeant Nelson followed the vehicle a short distance, confirming with his radar that the vehicle was traveling well above the posted speed limit. Sergeant Nelson initiated a traffic stop by activating his overhead lights, but the vehicle did not stop. Sergeant Nelson pursued the vehicle, which reached speeds of 60 miles per hour. The vehicle suddenly veered off the roadway, drove into a yard where the driver exited the vehicle and fled on foot. Sergeant Nelson began to pursue the subject, identified as Rubin Perry, but realized there was a juvenile left behind in the vehicle. Sergeant Nelson was able to locate Perry inside a residence at 409 Main Street. Perry was placed under arrest for Fleeing and Attempting to Elude Law Enforcement and Child Endangerment. Perry also had an active warrant for his arrest from another county. Perry was also issued two uniform traffic citations for Fleeing and Attempting to Elude Law Enforcement and Driving while License Suspended.Man Arrested for Eluding Officer Rubin Perry.

The investigation revealed that a passerby noticed a deceased dog lying near a trash collection site along with four puppies, one of which was also deceased. The Good Samaritan collected the three remaining puppies, and took them home to care for them. Further investigation revealed that the pit bull / hound mix and her puppies, may have been neglected and/or abused as they were severely emaciated. Sergeant Tom Swart began investigating the incident and located the suspect, identified as Deondra Milledge. On Tuesday, July 23, Milledge was arrested and booked into the Putnam County Jail on 5 counts of Animal Cruelty. Milledge was given a bond in the amount of $5,020. The investigation continued after Milledge named her boyfriend, Ryan Flynn as the person who placed Sasha and her puppies by the side of the road. A warrant was issued for Flynns arrest and on Monday, July 29, Flynn was located hiding out in the Welaka area by Chief Charlie Piwowarski with the Welaka Police Department. Flynn was turned in to the PCSO and transported to the Putnam County Jail where he was booked on two counts of Causing Cruel Death by Pain and Suffering to an Animal, and three counts of Abandonment of an Animal. Flynn was given a bond in the amount of $4,520. Only one puppy, named Beecher has survived. His new family is caring for him and he now has his own Facebook page called Hope for Beecher. Sheriff Jeff Hardy stated It amazes me that a human being can be so insensitive and cruel. Deondra Milledge. Ryan Flynn.

The Putnam County Courier Journal does not knowingly publish false information and may not be held liable for the views of readers exercising their right to free expression.Recently, I have had reason to spend considerable time observing the various people who utilize the Pomona Park swimming beach. For the most part, it appears to be families with small children and/or young couples. Everyone seems to enjoy themselves. Racially, there is a healthy mix of people who tolerate one another comfortably. Unfortunately, however, there is an element which is highly undesirable and detrimental to the various youngsters who frequent the beach. For want of a better term, I shall refer to them as drug dealers. It is obvious that Pomonas Swim Park is also Pomonas illegal drug marketplace. Why is this the case? Here are some of the reasons. The long dock and gazebo are (nearly) used exclusively for non-swim related activities. The drug dealers and their young customers can comfortably do their transactions at the end of the dock without fear of being surprised by law enforcement. Should law enforcement drive up, dealers can easily see them coming as soon as they turn off of Main Street. The element of surprise does not exist. If I were in charge of the Pomona Park Swim area, I would dismantle the dock and gazebo. The people, who go there to swim and play, do not use the dock. As it is, that dock is not an asset to the park or to the town. Instead, it is an unsupervised drug dealers dream. Sadly, the dock and gazebo are nothing more than an attractive nuisance and should be removed. It is a crying shame that a pretty little town such as Pomona Park cannot provide its youth with a safe and decent park to enjoy their summer activities. Perhaps there is a way. Of course, the town cannot afford to hire a person to supervise the park, yet has anyone considered organizing volunteers? The simple presence of an adult or two sitting in the gazebo, looking official would deter much unwanted activity. Such volunteers should not be armed with anything more than a phone. Neither should they do anything more than be present and watchful. Drug dealers do not like to be observed. Law enforcement, however, should be left up to law enforcement people. If, lets say 20 retired folks, got together and took turns among themselves doing one or two hour shifts at the park, it wouldnt take long before the drug people found somewhere else to do their thing. In other words, if the local people would start using the dock and gazebo for its intended purpose, it could remain and be enjoyed. It is a lovely place to sit and relax amid the sights and sounds of happy children at play. Someone just needs to get it organized. Pomona citizens, yall need to get together and take back your park. Its wrong to simply abandon it to thugs and dealers. When decent people out number them, they go away!Use It Or Lose ItLloyd Harris Local crime hot spots will be listed here weekly. This weeks hot spots are: Oakwood Street Walnut Street If you witness any criminal activity in this area, you are asked to leave a recorded message with the Crescent City Police Department Hot Tip Line by calling 386-698-3478. As always, in any emergency situation you are asked to call 911.Crescent City Police Department Needs Your HelpLetter to the Editor Dear Editor: A precious little twelve yearold girl wearing a bright pink wide-brimmed sunhat reported, I thought about it, and I think I like you this much, as she motioned spreading her thumb and pointer finger quite possibly an inch apart. Well, I replied, I think I like you this much, and I duplicated her finger movements spreading my fingers even farther than she. Ok. Then I like you this much, she replied and we continued our game of oneupmanship to peaks of giggles and laughter. This cute little girl attended the Putnam Family Fitness Centers Ice Cream Social on July 13, 2013, with her grandpa Jim Weller, our Tae Kwon Do instructor. Although we served 78 sundaes that day and earned about $800 toward our renovation goals, a success by many measures, the lack of children to enjoy, nourish and nurture was more than a little disappointing. It was a reminder that our organization and our community must not forget our responsibility to provide suitable healthy exercise and programming for our children. We welcome the Putnam County children to PFFCs Tae Kwon Do instruction held at the Community Center and to Carlynns Zumba classes at our new facility. At our last board meeting on July 25th, we discussed the need for childrens programming. Each board member has been instructed to research programs, costs, and available instructors and to bring that information to the next Board meeting. Therefore, we request suggestions from our community. Please pick up the phone and call 649-8784 or better yet, come into our new facility at 213 Perry Street, in Pomona Park, and talk with us. It is your PFFC and your influence and support will provide the direction for our growth and for our children. Currently the Board of Directors is looking into a girls soccer league and holding swimming lessons in Lake Broward. What about volleyball, kickball, gymnastics, or maybe basketball in the park with PFFC? If we could get adequate funding, it would be outstanding to have a childrens sailing program using Sailfish or Sunfish. And while we have applied for grants to provide middle school age children with a literacy, math, arts, and music afterschool program, other grant opportunities for innovative and replicable childrens programming are limited only by our imaginations. Our children need and desire our attention, for they are our future. As Erma Bombeck said, Children make your life important.

Yard of the Month The lovely home chosen for House of the Month by the CRA Advisory Board Beautification Committee is located at 400 Pine Street in Crescent City. The owner is Pennie Wright. Every inch of the yard (front and back) is beautifully landscaped. Even her potting shed is vine colored and looks like a picture from a Thomas Kinkade painting. (Her mom Marie McDowells words, but true.) The large Oak in the front yard is from an acorn Pennies late Dad, Paul McDowell, planted 20 years ago. Lovely home Pennie, thanks for sharing it with us. B.J.s Bene t Successful The bene t held at Market Square on Saturday, July 27 which was a fundraiser for B.J. Lauries stem cell surgery was very successful. Another sale will be held in Palatka at B.J.s mom, Laura Turners place. A date will be announced later. Betty White enjoyed the sale, she saw a lot of friends there and found a book written by our friend and neighbor, John (Doc) Hutchins, about his Vietnam War experiences, called Names Not on the Wall. Betty said her brother-inlaw Greg, who was a P.O.W. in the Vietnam War, would enjoy the book. Betty White Visits I was delighted to have Betty White from Melbourne for a weekend visit. She was able to see many of her former neighbors and friends. Carlyle and Bobbie Walls popped in to see her, also John and Elaine Edwards. We had lunch at Belles Bistro with friend Pat Morris. They both loved Belles. White stopped by the bene t for B.J. at the town square and saw many friends. She went to the Catholic Church on Saturday night where she saw even more friends. We met her at Wendys for a late supper after church with our Postmaster, Kevin Cox and his wife Marieta. On Sunday, White went to St. Augustine to have lunch with more friends and on Monday she boarded a bus for Biloxi, Mississippi, with 50 or 60 other seniors to hit the casinos. Good luck Betty. Come again soon. Catholic Men Hold Craft Fair All you crafters and woodworkers, start working on your collection now for the Craft Fair to be held at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church on November 9 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Non food vendors are needed.

She came back to Florida, bringing mom, Mary Bowman, her granddaughter 13 year old, Sydey and 16 year old niece, Victoria (or she will be 16 on my birthday) with her. The group has been shopping, visiting and sightseeing. They are planning a birthday dinner for Mrs. Mary and Victoria. Sydney and Reid Carter went roller skating in Deland on Saturday. (Reid said it was fun but the rink was small. Being from Texas, I guess you would expect that.) Next Meeting for Crescent City Celebration Committee On Thursday, August 15 at 6 p.m. at City Hall will be the next meeting to form committees for the kickoff of the Christmas Festival. Anyone who would like to be a part of this fun event, come join us. Charlotte Santa thanks the (Stuart) Reiters for a donation to get the plans started. Hope to see you there.

The August 2, 1957 issue of the Crescent City Journal carried the following article: Regardless How, Vote What You Think Best for Crescent City Next Tuesday, August 6, the voters of Cresent City will go to the polls to vote to approve or to reject the proposed new charter proposed for this municipality, many years since it was proposed that a new charter be approved by the voters to replace the old out-moded charter and ordinances which have become a joke, insofar as enforcement of any value to city government. Early in the Spring of the year the town council named a charter committee composed of Mayor Joe E. Thomas, Councilman George C. Miller, Jr., Philip A. Sargent, J. L. Deacon, Murray Collier, Attorneys Bruce Davis and Kirk White, and these seven representative men of Crescent City organized with a chairman and secretary, and proceeded to deliberate and give much of their time for compiling a suitable charter for this city. After drafting a proposed form for a charter, it was submitted to the Legislature and by resolution of that body authorized an election be held and the registered voters by referendum will make the decision at the ballot box; and subsequenty the town council has authorized this election be held on next Tuesday, August 6th, 1957. The charter comission had copies of charters from other municipalities for their guide, and took such parts as they thought would be applicable to Crescent City. Now we have the opportunity to vote our city in line of opportunity to go along with other Florida cities in keeping with uniform progress for better city government. In the August 9, 1957, issue it was reported: Voters Approve New Charter Crescent City voters Tuesday overwhelmingly approved a new charter for the town which provides for a mayor-commissioner type of government. Of a total of 313 votes cast, 303 decided for the new charter, eight voted no, and two ballots were not counted since they were received too late. The special referendum was set by a local bill passed by the Florida legislature. The new plan will become effective in April of 1958. A4 Courier Journal August 7, 2013 OUR ToO WN Years Ago...75 years agoAugust 10, 1988 Smell of Citrus Groves Returning to South Putnam Some south Putnam growers, for the first time in five years, are anticipating the smell of orange blossoms in the air next springtime. Putnam County, once a thousand-acre bastion of specialty citrus growing, was forced out of the business by successive killer freezes in December 1983 and January 1985 followed by a disease epidemic. Growers are taking advantage of the latest technology to freeze-protect the trees with irrigation systems, so once the new groves are established, they will be better equipped to deal with the cold.25 years agoAugust 12, 1938 To The Parents of Crescent City There is a state law, against children under the age of sixteen years, driving an automobile. This law is being violated in Crescent City at this time. It must stop, for it is against the law. My Marshall has orders to bring all offenders before me and for first offenses; their fines will be five dollars and costs, no exceptions. I hope each of you will save your Mayor from this painful duty. August 8, 1963 Rabid Raccoon In County Putnam County has finally joined the ranks with her neighboring counties in rabies incidence.

Padgett summarized the protest by explaining that Kent Brothers was recently awarded a bid for work. Slaughter Construction Company, Inc. initiated that the work required a Contractor V status. Kent Brothers holds no such license. After some research it was determined that the work to be done did not require such a license. It was recommended to dismiss the protest, which the council voted to accept.Way Back When...Community from page A3 Putnam County CROSSWORD SOLUTION SUDOKU SOLUTION NOTICEBefore Digging in Areas Near Gas LinesCall 811For Emergencies698-148624-Hour AnsweringCrescent City Natural GasServing:Crescent City, Lake Crescent Estates, Lake Como, Pomona Park, Welaka, Satsuma, Dunns Creek and San Mateo Eleven Different Sizes from 5x5 to 12x20TWO LOCATIONSBehind Kangaroo on Paradise Shores Road, Crescent City(includes fenced outside storage area) and County Road 309, Fruitland386-698-2002P&FMINI WAREHOUSE STORAGE Lovarnso WalkerSales Consultant256 Hwy. 17 N., Palatka, FL 32177 (386) 328-8863 Ext. 117 (800) 382-3692 Ext. 117 FAX (386) 328-7222 CELL (386) 559-3512 lovarnsowalker@beckchrysler.com Dr. Walker Curing All Your Automotive Needs Robert Kelsey, M.D. and Internal Medicine Now Accepting New Patients199 South Hwy. 17, East Palatka 386-326-3970 2720 U.

I should be starting seeds for the fall garden, but its too hot, too humid, too rainy, and I am literally up to my knees in weeds. The skunk vine has made it to the upper lawn, and the orange trumpet vine that looks so beautiful clambering up one of my ancient oaks has a healthy root system that is sending up trumpet vine plant pups all over the lawn as well. I had planted some Mexican sour gherkin cucumber seeds in large patio pots. The fruits are an inch long shaped like tiny watermelons and grow on dainty vines with tiny leave and flowers. I reasoned they would be a nice companion for the tiny heirloom Everglades tomato plants that were surviving the summers humidity. The plants are doing well, but I never see fruit thanks to the gastronomic desires of the local bird and squirrel population. So I was not too unhappy when I noticed one of my adult owls climbing a tree dragging a squirrel behind it. Now, baby owls will climb a tree to get back into the nest, but I had never seen an adult owl do this. Apparently, the squirrel was too heavy to allow the bird to fly, so the owl adapted to the situation. Bon appetite, Owl, and I wonder if the meat had a faint flavor of tomato-cucumber. In 1885, the water hyacinth (Eichornia crassipes) was introduced into the U.S. from Brazil. The plants are lovely with upright lavender blossoms that look like hyacinths. People immediately added them to their landscape, and eventually they ended up in bodies of water. The water hyacinth is one of the most productive plants on earth and can double in size in 10-14 days. It is now considered to be the worlds worst aquatic plant. It forms dense free floating masses which create low oxygen levels beneath the mats limiting the growth of our native aquatic plants. These mats also provide excellent breeding grounds for mosquitos and hazards for boaters and fishermen. Wind and water action and entrapment of masses beneath boats can cause some of the mass to break off. It merely floats to a new location and sets up housekeeping. Recently, I noticed masses of water hyacinth rapidly multiplying along the southwestern edge of Crescent Lake. The protocol is to contact the Invasive Plant Management Section of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for ideas on how to control this pest and the two other major aquatic pests: Hydrilla and Water Lettuce. However, if you live on a navigable waterway like the St. Johns River and Crescent Lake, the entity to contact is the Army Corps of Engineers that maintains a small office in Palatka (386-3282738). Please remember to never use this plant in your landscape even if you think it will be completely and safely contained in a garden setting such as a fish pond. Remind all the boaters you know clean the bottom of their boats before entering or leaving the water. Because of the time of year and all the rain, insects are very active, especially early in the morning and after the sun goes down. I was reminded the other day that some of the insects I was familiar with as a child are still around if we look for them. I have a Hoya plant that seems so happy in my carport that I have designated the space as its permanent home. The other morning, something seemed different about the plant, and when I looked closer I saw that there was a leaf bug sitting on the top of the plant, blending perfectly with the Hoya leaf. Leaf bugs were what we called them as a child, but it is really a Common True Katydid. All Katydids, so called because their song sounds like a raspy 3 syllable Kate-e-did, are camouflaged to blend in with the leaves they feed on. They are usually green and 1 to 5 inches in length with antenna that are longer than their bodies. They are usually heard, but not seen because they spend most of their time at the top of trees closer to their food source. They rub their front wings together to make the sounds, which other katydids hear through the flat patches on their legs, which act as ears. So when it is dark, go outside and see if you can distinguish a Katydids song from that of the tree frog or a cricket. Katydids dont bite or sting, but it seems that every other insect in Florida does, and has identified me and my dogs as a food source. Dogs are prone to hot spots this time of year usually because they have received an insect bite. The usually treatment is a Tee Tree oil or spray. Never use Tee Tree oil on cats. This works most of the time, but if you want to try something else, put some organic apple cider vinegar, (the kind that has the mother in it) in a spray bottle (try 3 Tbls. Vinegar mixed in 8 oz. Of water) and spray as needed. People can use the vinegar spray as well or try my favorite home remedy for ouch relief: Dissolve 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 aspirin, and 1/3 tsp. meat tenderizer in 1/3 cup ammonia or Windex. Store in a spray bottle in the fridge, shake before using, and apply as needed. By now you have pulled most of your vegetable garden, and are solarizing it for the fall planting. The summer flowering plants are looking a bit droopy from the heat except for such garden stalwarts as pentas, 4 oclocks, vincas, zinnias, and salvias. Crotons are adding foliage color. I keep mine in large pots because I know the minute we get a frost they will die back to the ground, but for 9 months of the year they are a colorful addition to the garden. Gardeners, take a breather. Watch the butterflies, which have been wonderful this year, enjoy your garden while you enjoy a book or two. Research for the above is courtesy of IFAS (Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences) and the Putnam County Extension Service, a joint project of the University of Florida and Putnam County.

August 7, 2013 COURIER JOURNAL Section B Seems as though all we read about these days, at least in the sporting world, is the subject of drug and HGH use by big name athletes, speci cally Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun. Well, I almost forgot the Aaron Hernandez murder case, or is it plural? I watched a panel discuss the steroid problem on TV the other night, and one of these people suggested that the use of these performance-enhancing drugs should be allowed among professional athletes. so what if it enhances their performances? It might make the games more interesting with more home runs and no-hitters in baseball, and better stats in football games. Its not a situation similar to the marijuana controversy, where legalizing its use would ultimately negate the need for all the expensive police work and the big money makers would fall by the wayside. This is limited to a relatively few professional athletes who would put themselves in a position to win more batting titles, home run titles, touchdowns and passing records to enhance their value to their respective ball clubs and make more money for themselves. I dont think any of this is good. You just wish an athletes prowess was due to his or her extraordinary physical condition stemming from normal activities in the weightroom, and not enhanced by taking a pill or injection. Thats pretty much it. Hopefully, the use of this stuff will not lter down into high school athletics. Or has it already done that? Chances are that some of this is already present on college campuses, but lets hope it isnt. I picked up a football magazine last week and learned that the SEC has three top ten teams: Alabama, Georgia and Florida. The one that blew me out was the Gators selection as number 10. Alabama and Georgia are legitimate top ten, and it could be the Gators are, but it is all news to me. As if I would be on the inside of any such news. Nevertheless, there they are, with Jeff Driskel on the cover page. Apparently the Gators strong defense, and the strong possibility that the offense would improve drastically, moved some pollsters to place them that high. Last year ended on a downer when they lost to Louisville, big time, in the Sugar Bowl. It was considered a monster upset. Florida looked lost in that game, particularly on defense, which was considered a strong suit. However, the Gators do have a potentially potent offense with Driskel at quarterback and Matt Jones as the primary runningback. Now, the news out of Gainesville is that Driskel just had an appentectomy and Jones is out inde nitely with a virus of some sort. Jones, who was supposed to take Mike Gillislees place, will be replaced by Mack Brown and a couple of others. One of who is Trey Burton, one of my favorite Florida backs, who can carry and catch the ball. Other than those big time injuries, the Gators have a number of starting linemen on the injured list. The Gators should be ready to play as a unit by the time they start their SEC schedule, but there could be some potholes that they need to be wary of early on. The Gators need to show a real solid offense early on to get them on the right track and carry them into the tough part of the schedule. Stanford, Oregon and Georgia followed Alabama in that poll, with FSU in 17th place, the place where I gured Florida would be. From what I understand, the Seminoles have a young quarterback who can play, so look for them to be in the thick of the ACC title run, along with Miami, North Carolina and Clemson.

SJR State Fall Registration Ends August 18Special to theCourier Journal Diverse beginnings, different life journeys, varied media, time and distance have lead three artists to live and create in Palm Coast, and to share the culmination of their experience with you at the Larimer Arts Center in Palatka. The next exhibit sponsored by the Arts Council of Greater Palatka will feature the return of Donald Kolberg to the galleries, along with fellow artists William B. Brandt and Lawrence Philp. These three men have distinguished backgrounds and life experiences, which molded the artists they have become today. Donald Kolbergs wire mesh sculpture, steel ribbon art and painting embraces the organic development of perception as it relates to medium and message. Masses associated with the traditional proportions of the figure are exploited in ways that blend the sculpture into planes that enhance the anatomical structure. Because of the open mesh, I am able to explore the underlying tension of muscles and movement in relation to the implied mass of the figure, says Kolberg. I guess you can say I look for an ease and harmony in my attitude toward sculpture. Shadows created by these sculptures appear three dimensional, complementing the original structure of the art. Viewed together, they are a dance of form and movement that has not been seen in traditional carving or modeling. Additionally, his recent sculptural and narrative collages will be displayed for the first time. Donalds work has been exhibited with other works from the Albany Museum of Art in Georgia, as well as being displayed at MOFA, The Museum of Florida Art. His work was recently displayed at a group show at the Bethune Cookman University in Daytona. He has been invited to have works included in an upcoming book, Recycled Glass Sculpture and Design by Cindy Ann Coldiron, published by Schiffer Publishing. Additional work and information can be found at www.Donaldkolberg.com William B. Brant, painter, says of his work, As a young man, I put it all in. I loved the goo, the surface and color, delivered with a lighthearted touch. As an older man, Im taking that out, reducing the work to its basic elements. I want my new paintings to have their primary voice through color, and still leavened with whimsy. According to Brandt, his work is becoming more and more about how few elements it takes to make a good painting. Brant, Professor Emeritus at Massachusetts College of Art & Design in Boston, has been creating oil paintings for more than 50 years. Brants career has focused primarily on teaching, while adding to his professional credentials with shows, private commissions, and corporate design work. Brant currently lives in Palm Coast, where hes happily painting large canvases. View more of his work at http://www. williambbrant.com. Lawrence Philp says of his work, I work in a non-representational manner. The paintings that I make are made with acrylic paint and water-soluble latex enamel paint. My paintings are layered with subject matter and the paintings are painted and over-painted. I like the paint on a surface to have a tactile, textural quality and I alternate using wet in wet painting technique while re-working or editing sections of dried paint. I paint things out. I paint things over until they fit. I make cardboard relief elements to place into my work to give me a raised element to consider on the painting substrate: bas-relief on a flat painted surface. The contradistinction imposed with a relief surface juxtaposed to, next to, a flat surface is becoming fascinating to me. For images of the work of Lawrence Phlip and more info, visit his website at http://lawrencephilp.com/ This promises to be an exciting exhibit, says Arts Council Gallery Chairman Evelyn Snyder I cant wait to see it all put together in our historic Larimer Arts Center. We were lucky to make this connection with these talented artists. The show opens with an artists reception on Friday, August 16, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., once again partnering with the Third Friday downtown Street Party at the Art Shoppe, Tilghman House and Downtown Palatka. Light refreshments will be served, and admission is free. The show will run from August 16 through September 5. The Arts Council of Greater Palatka is the designated Local Arts Agency for Putnam County and is sponsored in part by membership, the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs; the Florida Arts Council; and the Tourist Development Council, the City of Palatka and the Putnam County Commission.
